Well It's About Time!!!

I'm FINALLY finished with the lilac afghan. It's been nearly 3 weeks since I started it and I am glad it's over. I still have a few ends to work in, but other than that - WOOHOO I'm done!

Now I get to work on my in-progress felted bag, Dana's Lacy Shrug and Today I have to quickly make a ribbon shawl for my MIL. The shawl is the most pressing as it's deadline is Sunday - I'll finish it no problem.

Pokey on the Afghan
My Pokey - taking the afghan for a test drive. The afghan pattern was from Donna Kooler's Colorful Afghans book. I used Caron Simply Soft (14 3-oz skeins) in color orchid. I made the pattern at 160 stitches instead of the 120 it called for.

On The King for Scale
Spread out on the king-sized bed for scale.

Hammy Anna! She jumps up onto the bed and said "Mommy take MY picture!" So I did!

I'll keep you posted!

Hee, hee...I have a beagle named Pokey too. He looks an awful lot like yours'. Perhaps they were separated at birth?

Beautiful afghan.
